Cities With Teams In Both The NBA And NHL Playoffs, Part 2

April 16, 2018

Toronto heads the list of remaining cities, with teams in both the NBA and NHL playoffs.

The NBA Raptors are the East top seed, while the Maple Leafs, though third in their “div,” hence sans home advantage vs Boston (the lone city with first round home advantage teams in both leagues’ ‘offs), were tied for third in points in the Eastern Conference.

Philadelphia, so successful in sports of late (the Eagles and Villanova won it all, unprecedented success a Supe title followed by an NCAA basketball crown), has the NBA East “3,” which is seemingly a good position, in the 76ers while the Flyers third in their “div,” are sans home advantage vs the defending two time NHL champion, Penguins.

Washington’s NHL Capitals lost in “too early to clash,” NHL “quarters,” to the eventual champion, Penguins the last two seasons, have home advantage vs the Columbus Blue Jackets while the “8” seed Wizards, of course do not vs the top seed Raptors in the first round.

Minnesota’s NHL Wild were 5th in overall points in the NHL but in the ridiculous “make divisions” important NHL system, are in the wrong one, finishing third and are sans “home ice” vs the Winnipeg Jets.

Meanwhile, the NBA, Timberwolves, who covered the Denver Nuggets in overtime in the season’s final game to make the ‘offs (almighty ESPN did not see fit to TV that one, making in my opinion, Doris Burke’s non stop “analysis” even worse, during a rout, Phil vs Milwaukee game they deemed the one to televise) are the West “8” seed and roughly 15 to 1 underdogs in their preliminary/first round series vs the (65-17) Houston Rockets, the latter hoping to, but facing a tough road in a bid to join the city’s baseball Astros as their league’s big prize winner.

 

If only the great announcer, Harry Kalas, a Philadelphia based gem, was still around to enjoy the current Philadelphia sports success.
